TUESDAY March 8, 2011- Just Dandy

For the dandelion image, I inked the stamp with versamark ink, then colored the stem and leaves with a marker, stamped the image and then added white embossing powder and heat embossed the fluff. I added the white picket fence border to the right side of the blue pane. I punched the word window on the left side of the panel. The word hello is stamped onto the yellow panel and aligned with that hole. That is mounted onto the green card stock and then another square of the blue. I punched the three butterflies and stamped the fluff part of the flower onto them with versamark and embossed with clear to give the wings a little texture. Look closely and you can see it. The card is a 4-1/4" squaare.
Here is another card using this set and one of the wonderful sentiments:
